Can you have a time signature other than 4/4 on Hermod+?

Hi,

I don’t know if this has been asked before but can you change the time signature on the Hermod+ I want to work on one of my songs with the Hermod, the song is in 6/8 and I can’t find out how to change this on the Hermod+ Thank you so much for helping me out!

Hi @Raaf
There isn’t really any support for time signatures at all on Hermod+.

However all patterns can have an arbitrary length, displayed in steps (16th notes). So any multiple of 12 would correspond to a 6/8 time signature.

Thank you so much, that makes perfect sense… thank you for pointing that out! Have a great day. Btw I love the Hermod+ it really enables me to perform songs with my modular synth supported by my laptop and daw. As a singer and songwriter who works mostly with modular synths this module is a dream!

Hermod+ doesn’t directly show time signatures like 6/8, but that’s okay! You can still make music in different feels. Just program your beats in the sequencer. The sequencer works in steps, and any number of steps can be a pattern. So, 12 steps would be like a 6/8 time signature (because 6 eighth notes = 12 sixteenth notes). Just focus on the number of steps in your pattern to create the rhythm you want.
